Thiago Silva out for tomorrow’s FA Cup game against Barnsley.
Summer signing Thiago Silva will be out for the Blues’ FA Cup clash against Barnsley at Stamford Bridge.
The 36-year old centre-back was subbed off in Chelsea’s 1-0 win over Tottenham and will continue to recover from his thigh injury.
Silva previously worked with Thomas Tuchel at PSG and was commanding in the back three before his muscle injury.

“Thiago’s out; he’s feeling better and better all the time and he’s getting a lot of treatment,” said Tuchel.
“I know him very well from the last few years together at PSG, so we can all be absolutely sure that Thiago’s spending absolutely every minute available to speed up the process of healing.
“But it takes its time, it’s a muscle injury, we cannot force it; we cannot pull the grass to make it grow faster.
“That’s how it is with muscle injuries, so he’s out for tomorrow for sure.”
